I had an early meeting at 7:00 and I was in at 6:30sh or so.  I snuck out this afternoon and got a good 90 minutes of flat riding in.  I headed out to Danville and a great ride until coming back on the bike path where I had to deal with significant traffic.  My personal favorite was the four abeast walkers who wouldn't move!    Two bikers before me did the "on you left" thing to no avail.

I left my garmin at home, so the time and the results are estimates

I did the three bears with people from work. Aaron, Tony and I stayed together until about Momma bear, when Aaron smoked us. I derailed four times on the ride--need to adjust my bike. My recovery between hills was very strong and I didn't push the ride too much. Good prep for Wildflower.

I brought my bike to work today. :-) I brought it home without riding it :-(

After getting the kids feed and their chores done, I spun for 40 minutes. Nothing exiting. It was a recovery day and I focused on 90 cadence + aero bars.

 


So I'm thinking about Saturday's TRI. Here is my game plan:

 

1. This is a practice race for the following Saturday. Race under control.

2. Get there early and set-up and warm-up properly.

3. Run under control to save the knee. Hit the uphills hard since they don't hurt. If the knee hurts, walk the down hills. Keep the knee in place for Wildflower.

4. Nail the transitions. I gave up significant time here last time.

5. Stay in the aeros until the hill by Canyon. After the climb, hit the aeros again. Aero, aero, aeros.

6. Have fun.

2800
WU: 300 swim & then 300 drills.
MS:
8x100 @75% effort. Rest is 20".
Then 8x100 on your best average of the set above (if you hit 1:40 avg. then that is your goal on this set). Rest is 10".
Next set is 400 pull with paddles.
CD: 200

(*) B.P.A. = Best Possible Average, this will be one benchmark set that you can do once every three weeks. The idea is to record the 8, 100's and average them. Keep the record and you should be slightly faster the next time.

I swam at Heather Farms at 2:00.  It was a strong swim, but the guy in the lane next to me was going 50% faster--and he was only kicking.   

-----------------------------

I did my lactic acid test with the Iron Team this evening.
